California Delays Tax on Medi-Cal Managed Care Plans

Implementation of California’s Medi-Cal managed care sales tax program has been delayed pending federal approval. The implementation date has not yet been determined. The California Board of Equalization (BOE) will notify taxpayers once the program is approved. Medi-Cal managed care plan sellers will not be required to pay the taxes until they receive the capitation payments from the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS). The tax will be retroactive to the effective date of July 1, 2013. Anyone who has already registered as a retailer with the BOE under this program does not need to register again. For more information on this tax see our prior news item here. (Special Notice L-367, California State Board of Equalization, October 2013)
